Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.) These appointments require a 30 minute appointment with the GP. We are unable to book these at short notice and patients are advised to book their appointment with plenty of time.
- Insurance claim forms
- Private letters (for travelling with certain medications, university courses, Cornwall Council). Please allow 7 days for this to be completed.
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates. Please allow 7 days for this to be completed.
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
We aim to complete all requests in a reasonable time frame. The responsibility of meeting deadlines lies solely with the patient. Any urgent NHS work will take priority.
